Stripes & Plaid

I’ve finally found a fleece that I absolutely love. I’ve always been a fan of Lands’ End items, but this is my favorite fleece to date. The thing that changed? I bought the size that fits me best. I’ve come to the realization that if I can get a tall size, I should. Now, I’m not super tall (about 5’7″ or 8″). But I do have wider than average shoulders and long arms. So tall sizes just work better. I’ve started to look for them more – whether it is at Lands’ End, or Old Navy and Gap. The one con to this strategy? I pretty much have to shop online. While I’m a major fan of online shopping, there is something to going to the store and trying things on. But I’ll take a great fitting item any day over getting to try on in store!
